According to a recent news release from Moderna, studies have shown that children ages 6 to 11 have strong immune responses to the company's kid-size COVID-19 vaccination, which offered young children half the normal dose given to adults with positive results.

Moderna reported Monday that then half-dose given of their vaccine is safe and appears to work in young children ages 6 to 11. Moderna has not gotten approval to offer its shot to children yet but is currently studying the results from lower doses on volunteers in hopes to expand vaccines to children soon.

Moderna tested two child-sized doses a month apart, and found the children developed virus-fighting antibodies similar to the levels vaccinated adults received from a full dose, Moderna said in a release.Moderna hopes to join its rival,Pfizer, in offering vaccines to younger children soon. Pfizer's vaccination is already authorized for anyone 12 or older, but the company is currently seeking to expand distribution to younger children. Pfizer's kid-size vaccines are currently under evaluation by the Food and Drug Administration for use for children ages 5 to 11 and could be available as early as November.

The U.S. is striving to begin vaccinating children under 12 soon, and there seemed to be some positive results recently as Pfizer reported last week that the kid-size doses proved to be close to 91 percent effective at preventing symptomatic COVID-19 in children ages 5 to 11.

The study was too small to spot any extremely rare side effects, such as heart inflammation that sometimes occurs after either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, mostly among young men.Moderna released no further details and hasn't submitted its data to a scientific journal but said it plans to share the interim results with the

and global regulators soon. The study is still going on, and the company cannot calculate the vaccine's effectiveness in actually preventing infections in children unless there are sufficient COVID-19 cases to compare rates between vaccinated and unvaccinated participants.

Moderna Data Shows Covid-19 Vaccine Produced Strong Immune Response in 6- to 11-Year-OldsModerna said it would submit the results from an interim study to health regulators in the U.S., Europe and elsewhere in seeking authorization for 6- to 11-year-olds. Also note the use of “induced the desired immune response” rather than “protected them from COVID”. If they’re like Pfizer, that’s because not enough kids got sick (in either group) to test that. 🤣🤣🤣

Moderna says its Covid-19 vaccine was well-tolerated and generated robust immune response in children ages 6 to 11Interim results of a Phase 2/3 trial showed Moderna's Covid-19 vaccine was well-tolerated and generated a robust immune response in children ages 6 to 11, the company said Monday. Hi 👋 Let's support each other ❤️ “Well tolerated” is going to equal a hard no for a lot of parents. Sounds like a nice way of saying most kids did fine but there were some problems. A shot of vaccine is 10,000 times better than a shot of disinfectant.

Moderna says its Covid vaccine has strong results in children ages 6 to 11Data from an interim study showed two 50 microgram doses of the vaccine, half the strength of the doses used in the vaccine given to adults, generated virus-neutralizing antibodies in children. Strong results alright!!! Disgusting! That's great but what about us people over 50 . My brother in law had the same shot and now is fighting for his life with covid in an area hospital. This is exactly why I won't get the shot . My brother in law took the shot and three days later got covid. Here we go again. Another AFRICAN country, SUDAN, is collapsing by USA interference. Look the trend. everywhere USA enters. Somali, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Afghanistan, Syria, ... AU wake-up. STOP snoring.

Moderna says its COVID-19 vaccine is protective, safe in kids 6 to 11Moderna said its two-dose vaccine generated virus-neutralizing antibodies in children and safety was comparable to what was previously seen in clinical trials of adolescents and adults. My Kids will never get the vaccine. That is freakin ass LIE! All vaccines are deadly poisin. Vaccines are killing people and newborn babies. So if you wanna die, and/or your newborn die DO NOT TAKE THE VACCINES [they are killing people. That is 100% TRUE! Child abuse.
